We are getting ready for our next trip in the RV. In the meantime, I thought I would share a couple of pictures our daughter, Katie, took with her telescope from her back yard.
These are of Orion's Nebula. In the case of Orion's Nebula, it is a gas and dust cloud illuminated by lots of stars that are young. It is like a star nursery, so the gas and dust and other processes are leading to the birth of a new star. Other Nebula are formed when a star dies and ejects its outer layer of gas.
It is an amazing part of our existence most of us barely understand!
And now down to earth, we went to Pensacola and finally got a good picture of my pelican!
